It's this or productivity

So my house needs to be cleaned, and I don't want to do it. I decided to blog instead. My brain is a jumbled mess right now. You get what you get, and don't say I didn't warn you.

-We took Baby off of dairy after a doctor at Children's suggested allergies might be causing the coughing, wheezing and general snottiness. I think it's helping, but I'm kinda annoyed that we can't even adopt a kid without food issues. What's up with that?

-Our basement finish is coming along. Slowly. Because we have a life which includes 4 children and all the stuff that that entails.

-My husband continues to impress me with his general manliness. The guy can frame, rough in electrical and do plumbing. He also can pull off wearing Wranglers and cowboy boots without looking completely ridiculous. I bet your husband can't do that .

-Our church took several hours today to serve our community. My team did trash clean-up in an open space park. It was fun, and successful, and if you litter ---- S.T.O.P.! I mean it. It looks really crappy and it's totally irresponsible.

How was that for sensitivity?

-I am considering raising chickens. For real. Now you can decide if you still want to be my friend.

-I think, and correct me if I'm wrong, that when you're approaching what you weighed when you were 9 months pregnant with your first child and YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT... your weight may be a smidge out of control.

It's possible that it is my medication. It is also possible that it is my heart. My cholesterol is fine, but I think I might love food too much.

I was filling out a job application for a christian school. It asked, "Do you use alcohol?" I was amused. I do DRINK alcohol; I don't use it. Cookies, on the other hand, are a different story. I have been known to use cookies, and bread, and muffins.... okay carbohydrates in general...

Lucky for me they didn't ask about that on the application.

-That reminds me, Lemon Jello Pudding is really yummy. You should try it.

-I let my kids wear their jeans 2 times before I wash them. It extends the life of the jeans and cuts down on laundry. It's green. Don't you think it would be more environmentally friendly if I let my kids wear jeans 5 days in a row? It could be gross, true. But think of the laundry it'd save.

-There are still some people out there who look at me and think I have it all together. I find this vastly amusing. I have no idea how I project that image, because it is laughably absurd; just ask my family.

Some People (the same ones who think I have it together) think I'm being coy, or cute when I say I am terrible at administrative tasks. I am just being honest. Seriously, just trying to find matching socks nearly puts me over the edge.

-My bulbs are waking up and my phlox has a bloom. I saw a robin the other day and a tree with litte green buds. Spring is in the air, and it's time to start planning my garden.

I want chickens too! You need to talk to my friend Noelle, she has 6 kids and is the coolest lady, she is also raising chickens, bakes her own bread, cans food and has an amazing garden. She is my hero.

My major hang up now is that I don't know who I'd get to babysit the chickens when we go out of town. That and my husband won't build me a coop on principle.

Apparently chickens are all the rage here in Colorado.
Let me know how that works out for you.
